    I guess the whole "White Out" campaign didn't work. Not too many people were wearing the shirts, from what I saw. Think they'll ever try something like that again?

    I'd bet 75%-80% of the fans were wearing them. The ones that didn't were probably wearing jerseys they didn't want covered and such.

    From the overhead shots it looked pretty white to me.

    yeah, I think that the more they do it, they should explain that the effect is lessened the more people wear different colors. It's really a cool thing to see, and I hope that they try to do it more. Fans just need to realize that it shows much better support when you're rockin the white with everyone else. Hell, wear a white jersey! A full whiteout tends to somehow bring the fans closer together, and create a much more intimidating feel.. JMO

    Made my orange bear shirt stick out nicely.

    It was scary to see big fat men with little white pom-poms. Very intimidating for the opposing team.

    XL shirts were large enough IF YOU COULD GET ONE! The PISS POOR logistics of handing them out at entry is why it didn't work. Normally they have someone handing stuff out immediately after they take your ticket, the genius idea this time was to have a kiosk at each gate where people are 10 rows deep trying to get a shirt with two people handing them out.

    It was a joke.

    Yeah I noticed that.

    When this stuff about the "white force" came out, I thought we'd wear our white jerseys at home.
